GEBCO/Nippon Foundation Training Programme 2010
The Nippon Foundation of Japan has provided funding for the General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (GEBCO) to train a new generation of scientists and hydrographers in ocean bathymetry. The 12-month course, leading to a Postgraduate Certificate in Ocean Bathymetry (PCOB), has been held at the University of New Hampshire, USA, since 2004.
GEBCO produces bathymetric charts and digital grids of the world ocean by collating, interpreting and contouring, with the aid of directional fabrics revealed by satellite gravity, single and multibeam soundings collected by surface ships, submarines and other underwater vehicles.
Students for the PCOB will be selected by a competitive application process. Minimum qualifications for acceptance are a four year undergraduate degree in a related science or engineering discipline, and proof of ability to successfully complete graduate level courses conducted in English. The selection process will aim at choosing candidates from a wide geographic distribution of coastal countries.
The closing date for applications is 22 March 2010.
